Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Directory Server 1.5.5 released
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2009 22:36:23 GMT
Apache Directory Server 1.5.5 released !

The Apache Directory team is proud to announce that the long expected 
1.5.5 version has been released yesterday.

Downloads are available at 

What's new ?

- More than 62 bugs have been fixed.
- We switched to MINA 2.0.0-M6
- entryUUID and entryCSN are now injected for every new entry
- huge search requests don't eat all the memory
- Addition of a Client-API (eliminary work)
- Jetty has been integrated into the server
- Addition of a Journal
- The server.xml file has been modified

Change in Server.xml

<defaultDirectoryService...> takes some new attributes :
  - replicaId (an integer) OPTIONAL
  - maxPDUSize (an integer, the maximum number of bytes a incoming 
message can be) OPTIONAL

<interceptors> :
  - the <referralInterceptor/> bean must be present

servers : the configuration has changed for all the servers 
(changePasswordServer, kdcServer,
ntpServer, dnsServer. They all take a <transports> set of transports, 
instead of sharing some
SocketAcceptor/DatagramAcceptor. For instance :

  <kdcServer ipPort="60088">

becomes :

      <tcpTransport port="8053"/>
      <udpTransport port="8053"/>

The <LdapService> bean has been renamed <LdapServer>, to have a 
consistent naming scheme.

<LdapServer> supports both the LDAP and LDAPS protocols, the transports 
are used to define
LDAPS if needed. :

      <tcpTransport address="" port="10389" nbThreads="8" 
backLog="50" enableSSL="false"/>
      <tcpTransport address="localhost" port="10686" enableSSL="true"/>

The second transport is used for SSL

<ApacheDS> bean does not contain a reference to a directory service 
anymore, each server which
need to rely on such a service will refer it into its own configuration.
